OMG! We almost had rain! There was some precipitation and, oddly, the plants in the garden appear to have actually grown afterwards. Yesterday there was not enough lettuce to harvest, today I have a big bowl full. And where did the new 3ft shoot come from that rose? Hmm?
Anyway, in celebration of seeing actual clouds and not just a lingering marine layer: color today.
The broad side of a barn framed by its surrounding landscape. I chose an optic center, or weighted center for this "mount". I choose black and white for gravitas. These barns are iconic. Although they are used in nearly every culture, a barn of single wall, plain board, on a farm is somehow associated with Americana. A symbol of the heart, of ideals, of solidity, home, security, love. It at once reaffirms independence and an encompassing community spirit.
